Gift of Mrs. Caroline M. Runner

Jean Neder: The veil has one straight side and a deeply rounded shape, with slightly squared ends. This unusual shape is bordered with small lappets, a second border of scrolls, then a Greek key band and a final border of what appears to be wisteria. The center field is filled with dots. Excellent condition, exhibitable quality.
